Thorium-U Recycle Facility (7930)

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

The Thorium-U Recycle Facility (7930), along with the Transuranic Processing Facility (7920). comprise the Radiochemical Engineering Development Complex. 7930 is a heavily shielded hot cell facility designed for operation and maintenance by master-slave manipulators and remotely controlled in-cell cranes. The Thorium-Uranium Recycle Facility is adjacent to the Transuranic Processing Facility with a common low-level liquid waste (LLLW) pipeline and a pneumatic rabbit transfer system between the two facilities. The Thorium-Uranium Recycle Facility contains the Californium Facility for final purification of Cf-252 and recovery of Cm-248. Cell C is utilized as the Cf-252 User Facility for neutron science. 7930 has a large hot cell complex having six shielded cells and one unshielded cell containing ~2500 ft2 of shielded processing area. There is a maintenance and service area surrounding the cell complex, including a high bay area with a 50-ton bridge crane. A water-filled pool is currently used for californium storage. Processing equipment for Cf purification and remote Cf source fabrication are also located in the facility. A Cf User Facility is available for neutron science research. The facility utilizes a cell off-gas system vented through the 7911 stack shared with Building 7920 and HFIR. LLLW is discharged to the Melton Valley LLLW facilities.
